    Warning: Spoilers inside!

    My N3DS XL took a hard hit today (closed) and when I started playing I noticed a few dead pixels in the corner of the top screen. Now, I personally couldn't give two shits about it, however I'd like the console to be in good condition once I'll decide to sell it so I was thinking about a replacement. Since I'm a cheap fuck, I found an unofficial LCD for about 10 bucks. My question is, could a crappy screen ruin the whole console? Could it tamper with a9lh in some kind of way? What are the downsides, quality? Durability?
    Here is the product I found, thanks.

    Mostly quality, if your screen was IPS and you purchase a TN, there's a downgrade in quality image.

    The quality of 3rd party screens may be inferior to the original, but in this case I am not sure how noticeable it would be as they are just cheap TN screens anyway (that's assuming your console doesn't have IPS screens)
    A cheapo replacement screen should do the job just fine. Or you could get an IPS replacement screen for the best quality.
